Today was the 5k classic mass start and first day of the Don Sumanik Race weekend. The short race made for an exciting pace, good for spectators. David Greer broke away half way through and hung on to his lead for the second half of the race. I was 2nd and Ray Sabo was 3rd. We were all within 4.5 seconds-so definitely a close race. Looking forward to the individual skate tomorrow. At 7.5 k, a very short race as well.
